Still life, landscapes, portraits or whatever your subject, good reference photographs are important. In this presentation, we will deal with the most common problems and even the tougher challenges. The emphasis is on the basic understanding of capturing the subject and solving our issues before they become problems.

Asking yourself about the composition and other considerations of setting up the scene:
where is the horizon? Is there a foreground, middle ground and background? The values, elements of design, what is the orientation of the viewer?

Most cameras today do a great job of making nice pictures of many situations. Many great art projects require going beyond the normal, where a little more knowledge is needed. I can help alleviate those frustrations in my presentation without too much technical time.

This is a "hands on" approach. Bring your camera, manual and prepare for a good time. I will have a computer to demonstrate the whole process.

This class is geared toward beginners.

Enjoy touring one of our local natural spaces while learning digital photography. NFLT has a conservation easement on the Cummer's Family home, a beautiful estate filled with wonderful photo opportunities alongside the St. Johns River in Mandarin. The home itself is a 1800's period home with beautiful oak trees, garden, fountain and landscaping.

Get up close and personal with your camera...
Most pictures are made with two switches. Turn on and press the shutter release. This is fine for many average snapshots but after hundreds of shots, how many do you want to blow up and put on your wall? This is a guide to getting more out of picture taking.

What is the difference between a snapshot and a photograph? Understanding the image. Bring your pictures. We will look at photographs and discuss visual grammar.

This is a results-oriented workshop. Goals are determined by you and should be thought about before you come.
